Hi guys, i am pretty new to the forum. I have been trying to refurb a few smoothing planes and have been working them with some sandpaper on plate glass. I started wtih 80 grit and am working my way up. I was marking the sole with a sharpie to see where the planes were out. It seemed to be going well as i was getting rid of most of the marker when sanding, but when i later checked, I noticed i had somehow started making the planes convexed (higher at the ends). I have been using an article by David Charlesworth that outlines pushing the planes at a diagonal and then switching. I thought this would help me to avoid any mess ups like this, but, apparently it has not. I don't have feeler gauges, but i can spot light coming through on the ends when i put them up to a light with a straight edge. Any advice would be much appreciated.
